ITS World Congress 2021

Welcome to the ITS World Congress

Trends turn into technology

We all want livable cities where we can live, work, and enjoy our free time. We can create these spaces if we want to – if we rethink mobility.

If we want to convince people to use methods other than individual transportation, we need new mobility options that are both convenient and flexible. Digitalization can significantly accelerate the shift toward sustainable, efficient, and climate-friendly urban mobility. As one of the pioneers of intelligent solutions for transport and infrastructure in and between cities, we not only offer mature technologies and solutions, but also are a competent adviser to those responsible in city administrations and ministries.

Achieving more together

Let’s talk about what’s next

Only together can we master the challenges of urban mobility and create solutions that do not contradict a livable environment. In Hamburg, we would like to present our concepts and solutions, and get in touch with you and your ideas – let’s talk about your mobility challenges.

About urbanization

Anyone who talks about urbanization also has to talk about traffic jams and gridlock. How can we win back our cities, making them greener and more livable again?

About digitalization

How can we use digitalization for intelligent transportation solutions? The year 2020 showed us how valuable digital solutions are – and not just for mobile working.

About the climate crisis

This issue confronts all of us with uncomfortable truths about the state of our planet and its future. How can we minimize pollution, especially from road traffic, to save the viability of our cities for future generations?

About shared economies

Bicycles, scooters, and autonomous cars in a shared traffic ecosystem: shared economies will change urban mobility. Continuous data exchanges between vehicles and an intelligent infrastructure will make traffic safer and more fluid.

About connectivity

What advantages does artificial intelligence offer in the context of traffic and transportation? With newly developed data solutions, we use existing information to optimize urban traffic systems.

Executive Session

Digital evolution or revolution?

Tuesday, October 12, 4:00-5:30 p.m. CEST, Messe - Copenhagen 1-3

This session will review some of the challenges for deploying future digital services, and consider whether we are accidentally dividing younger and older, city dwellers and suburban/rural livers, users of motorised vehicles and cyclists and walkers? How can we make sure that we don’t exclude some users or some categories of the population from access to information that is adapted to their individual needs and circumstances?

Our speaker:
Markus Schlitt

Exhibition Auditorium Session

Manage incidents collaboratively across organizations – Traffic Information Management System (TIMS) in Hamburg

Wednesday, October 13, 10:00-11:00 a.m. CEST, Hall B5

Traffic management in cities often involve multiple decentralized organizations that need to coordinate with one another. Yunex Traffic and the City of Hamburg demonstrate how these organizations can now manage their transportation networks collaboratively using a common operational view and communications platform. Now, operators from all stakeholder organizations can act on the same incident data (e.g. collisions, constructions, and events) and traffic condition data.

Our speakers and guests:
Anjes Tjarks - Minister for Transport and Mobility Transition - City of Hamburg
Nils Schmidt - Head of Yunex Traffic Germany

Afternoon Workshop

The New Era of Road Pricing

Wednesday, October 13, 2:00-3:30 p.m. CEST, CCH

Name it Road Pricing, Congestion Charging or City Tolling – usage-based charging is probably the most powerful tool that traffic management has to offer. Let us discuss benefits and challenges of road pricing approaches, look at recent developments of data-driven technology and think of social-economical aspects in an interdisciplinary round. 

Our speakers:
Holger Erhardt - Head of Interurban Solutions at Yunex Traffic
Sebastian Althen - Product and Sales Manager for Digital Twin at Yunex Traffic
